Default Lexus to show 2-seat sports car in Tokyo

Quote:
TOKYO -- Toyota Motor Corp.s Lexus brand will show a two-seat performance car -- widely expected to be a near-production LF-A -- at the Tokyo Motor Show.
The project has been held tightly under wraps. Toyota has withheld details on the car and didnt show it during a recent media preview session. The company offered no photo handouts.

Yet the mystery model is widely expected to be the long-awaited LF-A supercar.

That car is rumored to come with a V-10 engine and six-figure sticker price. President Akio Toyoda, a dedicated racing fan, has been test-driving the car around Germanys fabled Nurburgring track, fueling speculation that a market debut is imminent

Yeah, it's either that or a new SC to replace the outdated crap one they have now. All signs would point to the LF-A though, since as far as I know there's never been anything remotely resembling any kind of prototype, concept, or even mule SC.

Default Lexus confirms two-seat performance car for Tokyo Motor Show





Quote:
Toyota Motor Corp.s Lexus announced today that it will bring two-seat performance car, the near-production LF-A, at this years Tokyo Motor Show. As you may know already this project has been held tightly under wraps for years but we still found out that the supercar will carry a V10 engine capable to deliver an impressive 550 hp. Also the price is expected to be spectacular, because it will be built in a limited edition of just 500 units. Recently the LF-A was caught at the Nurburgring racetrack showing a new and stylish design. This concept vehicle epitomizes the purest form of driving exhilaration and performance. Says Lexus regarding the new supercar. Official details will be released on October 21!

Between this and the Subyota, I need about $250k to spend on 2 Toyota sports cars. Who'd have said that 2 years ago?!

In other news, Honda plans a competitor for the LF-A. It will have a 3.7 V6, a 5-speed automatic and based off the Accord platform.
